Juventus Vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview: Team News, Predicted Lineups, Key Men And Odds

Juventus is set to entertain Premier League high-flyers Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night as part of the first leg of the Champions League knockout stages. The visitors come into this contest in terrific form at the back of a brilliant 1-0 home win against Arsenal in the North London derby on Saturday. The Spurs are unbeaten in their last 12 matches in all competitions with their last defeat coming at the hands of the Premier League champions-elect Manchester City. Hence, Mauricio Pochettino will be confident about his side’s chances of getting a result at the Juventus Stadium.

The Turin-based side has not tasted defeat in their previous 16 matches in all competitions with their last defeat coming way back in November in a 3-2 away defeat at Sampdoria. The Bianconeri will come into this contest in top shape and might want to keep a clean sheet on the night to bolster their chances of qualification, with a trip to Wembley Stadium looming on the horizon.

Both teams will come into this clash in red-hot form which could make this contest an entertaining one.
